I’ll start by admitting, I did not buy this at full retail price ($400+) but at an auction for $30. I guess nobody else knew what this was. And I have only used the circular jig attachment, not the router edge yet (I have my Bosch RA deluxe router guide with dust control). For the home hobby wood worker, I could think of better ways for a circular jig. But for the professional, this would definitely be in my arsenal. The Microfence made cutting circles of 7”-infinity easy. You can lengthen the guide rods with purchase at any local store to 8’ if you wanted to. This comes with micrometer precision adjustments for that perfect 1/16” or 0.001” cut. Everything is machined, nothing flexes. Lots of accessories (I had to buy a router base plate adapter for my Bosch 1617). Easily breaks down to individual parts for storage. Stop collars for ranged cuts. This is one sweet creation.
